Happy to find this at Pies & Pints in Middlebury, CT this stout shows a solid black color with a big, never-die chocolatey colored head with lots of luscious lacing. The aroma is a very subtle chocolate-grain, but hard to place. The flavor brings charcoal-dark chocolate and grass hops. Charcoal-malt emerges as the dominant theme but it’s very nicely blended into a highly drinkable, yet tasty brew. This is creamy smooth and velvetty in feel, really wonderful and inviting. Body is solidly medium with a bit of a dry/resinous feel. Very nice and a stout I would easily have any time!

A - Black as midnight. Shining a bright flashlight into this does nothing. The light doesn't penetrate a full millimeter into that murk. Lovely textured tan head that lingers. Lots of lacing.

S - Mildly sweet caramelly earthy malt

T - Less sweet than some I've had, with a mature bit of char character that turns into a dry dark chocolaty bitter on the back of the tongue in the afterswallow and exhale and lingering aftertaste. Just a touch of tartness.

M - Just as satisfyingly thick and luscious as you want it to be. It's been a while since I had a nice thick beer and this hits the spot. So nice to pull on.

O - Mild like you'd expect, but with just enough subtle character to rescue it from being bland and put it into the nicely done category. I'd call it a mature oatmeal stout, like what they tried to do with the Arch Deluxe. It's hard for this style to score highly due to its innately mild and subdued character but this is pretty well done. I put this up there with Samuel Smith's.
